The strongest modern Goju-ryu fighter.

I (kancho Omoto)received great news . I share this as an honor to all Yuzenkai members.
“Dear Omoto Kancho, It is with great pleasure that I offer a World Championship to the glory of Yuzenkai.I became ICJJIF World Champion in Latvia.9 fights to get gold medal and world title.
I offer this title to you and all members of Yuzenkai.If I am here is because of that visit to Japan where you opened my eyes to real Karate.
For that, I will be forever grateful.
I hope your health allows you to celebrate this victory with me.
Josep Claramonte”

..I"kancho Omoto" am only a typical classical karateka of the GoJu-ryu.
But he is the GoJu-ryu fighter who embody the ideal of the unity of both "GO:thrust, kick, strike" and "JU :throw, joint technique, tighten, harden" in real combut .
I belive he is the strongest modern GoJu-ryu fighter.


Shihan-Renshi Josep Claramonte, the branch chief of YUZENKAI SPAIN , won three golden medals in the European Combat Jujutsu Championship held in Slovakia on MAY11-14.

..Shihan Josep Claramonte says"I was not planning on another cage fight but I was feeling strong and wanted to have a nice fighting experience once again. "
"It was an amazing month, training morning and evening almost daily, being crushed by my training mates day after day. On top of that, I had to lose 10 kg.My rival was incredibly strong and had great technique, and behaved like a gentleman before, during and after the fight."

Nijushiho bunkai exploration by Shihan Josep Claramonte 5/5/2017
..Shihan Josep Claramonte submitted the Renshi (錬士)dissertation to GIKKU- Yuzenkai Japan in December 2016 and Yuzenkai Honbu accepted it.His thesis ,which is more than 400 pages, is the results of original study and he added the new findings in Karate research. After careful consideration, GIKKU-Yuzenkai was determined that it is appropriate to award him the Renshi title.And he was awarded the title on March3 ,2017. He was promoted to 5thDan by this outcome.
..A research to Karate doesn't have a citizenship as an academic study in Japan.In other words,a study of Karate as Doctoral course level is nothing.This is a serious barrier for advance of Karate.So GIKKU aims to play a role as the institution for Degree as a researcher in Karate study .And GIKKU decided to authorizes a Karate Title(Degree) not by ambiguous contribution but by creative dissertation.
